Solid waste

"I always use McAlpine traps over other brands. They always go together well first time and seem reliable - never had a call back to look at one. This item is adjustable and has always fit on to any sink I've fitted it too."

spot on!
29 Nov 2013
By Pooly

"I bought this to install instead of the flimsy one they send out with a sink from a certain manufacturer when you buy a kitchen. told the customer it would be rubbish and not to order it and I would install a better quality trap. This was the better trap installed, tightened up and leak free as I expected from mcalpine! it's spot on!"

"good piece of kit, maybe a little difficult to piece together as no assembly infomation, but a little common sense overcomes that.
appears to seal and hold very well.

Excellent

"Fitted a few of these and you can feel the quality. All joints fit tightly with no leaks and decent rubbers.
When cutting to size there is room to be out by a couple of inches due to the way the pipes slide into each other."

"Buy McAlpine if you want the job done right. i tried a cheaper trap and it was a pain to put in...leaks all over the place. The McAlpine was far better constructed, it doesn't move at all once tightened...... took 10 mins to install."

Great trap!
23 Apr 2012
By suzi
, Liverpool
"McAlpine Double & 1½ Bowl Sink Kit 40mm Whilst this is a great product, I had to combine it with their other trap (not sold at screwfitx) so I could have both the washing machine and the dishwasher all going out the same outlet, freeing up some space, to allow appliances to sit a little better under the worktop.
For the novice fitter, they should give advice to recomment some accessory clips around the hoses, just for extra comfort and peace of mind that you don't experience any leaks!
Great quality from McAlpine, would recommend."

doesn't reach between 2 bowls
16 Jun 2013
By blackthornstick
, co durham
"Like all the McAlpine stuff this is a quality product, good seals, and generally well made.
BUT I can only give it 3 stars as it doesn't actually reach between the 2 bowls of a full size double sink. a standard sink is 400mm across so the horizontal link needs to extend to 450mm to reach. This one goes to a maximum of about 350mm - nowhere near long enough.
basically it will only work with a 1.5 bowl or very small double bowl sink, not a true full size double.
I had to add a straight join and a piece of pipe.
another niggle is that the macalpine fittings in general use a pipe that is 40mm in external diameter and the floplast ones use one that is about 41mm in diameter, and although they can fit together in some cases they never do so well. I wish screwfix would sell the mcalpine pipe online for delivery, even in short lengths!
In common with many other products on the website, the description is inadequate. it should clearly state the maximum plughole to plughole distance the kit can extend to.
the alternative floplast product doesn't reach either BTW, and is poorly made to boot, so I guess it is best to buy this one and expect to extend it. Or make up your own from individual parts."
